Proposed changes to Cranford Street and the surrounding area
Do you have an idea that will benefit young people, and link to aspirations from the Christchurch Youth Action Plan? Youth Voice Canterbury is seeking applications from individuals, teams, or organisations to the Big Ideas Fund. Note that: applications close on 24 June 2018; it is preferable that young people (aged 12-24) lead or are a major part of planning and developing the initiative the funding is requested for; and the $10,000 fund will be split between multiple applications.

Community Board Newsletters Papanui Innes – June 2018
An excellent example of working together this month with the progress made addressing issues concerning residents in the Shirley/Richmond and Dallington areas.
The Christchurch City Council will be lowering the dose of chlorine at approximately half of the pump stations that are being treated, with the hope that this will reduce taste and smell issues (“but there is a chance it may not make a significant difference”). At this stage it isn’t clear whether pump stations in the Papanui area will be among those that will receive a lower dose. Click through for more information:
Council moves to lower chlorine level
Christchurch City Council is starting to lower the amount of chlorine it is putting in the water at some of the city’s pump stations in an attempt to address taste and smell issues.
At the 18 May meeting, Papanui-Innes Community Board actions included: a request for a letter to ECan asking questions about air quality monitoring in relation to the Christchurch Northern Corridor project; approval of two applications to the Board’s Positive Youth Development Fund; and discussion of the Board’s area report. Click through to read the full minutes. The board will next meet on Friday 8 June at 9am in the Papanui boardroom.
Have you seen the new artwork on the windows at Papanui Library? The 2018 Polyphony exhibition features artwork by young people from Papanui High School, Papanui Youth Development Trust – PYDT, Papanui Baptist Church, Te Ora Hou Otautahi, Te Kaupapa Whakaora, and Casebrook Intermediate School, based on the youth week theme ‘Ahakoa te aha, kei a koe te tikanga: Be who you want to be’.
Breaking news: following ‘overwhelming’ public opposition to their proposal to discontinue six Christchurch bus routes (498 opposing submissions, 48 supportive ones), ECan have had a rethink. The solution considered by ECan (and hopefully approved – to be confirmed) is detailed on the MetroInfo website. Specifically for the Papanui area, the 107 will be retained (but with reduced frequency and shorter operating hours) and the 108 will be ‘mostly absorbed’ into an extended 28 service, which will continue past its current terminus at Northlands and run through Bishopdale & Casebrook to Northwood.

There is a lot happening at Northlands behind the fences. Check out progress on the Langdon’s Quarter development:
As reported in last week’s Nor’West News, Te Ora Hou Otautahi is planning a building project. The Windermere Road site, now owned by Te Ora Hou, was the location of Loreto College and Koinonia Christian School. If you are a former student of one of these schools, or have any other connection to the site, Te Ora Hou is interested in hearing from you – contact details are in the article, or see their Facebook Page.
Is is once again possible to turn left out of Grimseys Road onto QEII Drive. Please note that it isn’t possible to turn right out of Grimseys, or to enter Grimseys from either direction of QEII Drive. This configuration is expected to remain until September 2018, and then the intersection will fully close again for about three months, before reopening with its final left-in and left-out layout.
